Kelvin Price Dominates and Retires Danny Williams

By Alexey Sukachev

Eighteen years into his professional career and nine years removed from his career defining win over "Iron" Mike Tyson, Danny Williams (44-17, 33 KOs), has finally done what he had been asked so many times asked to do. Williams, now a shot and very faded 39-year old fighter, just a shade of his former self, called it quits and promised to hang'em up following his seventh consecutive loss - this time to the American fighter Kelvin Price (14-1, 6 KOs). Price, 37, who was blitzed by Deontay Wilder in his most recent ring appearance, won almost every round of a ten scheduled and cruised to a unanimous decision at Yunost sports arena in Klimovsk, Russia.

Four Russian fighters constituted the undercard of the show. Bantamweight Sahib Usarov (19-0, 6 KOs), competing at a higher weight class, tried hard but was forced to go the distance versus the Kazakh import Zhandos Zhetpisbaev (5-6, 2 KOs), winning an eight-round decision.

Fedor Chudinov, the brother of Dmitry Chudinov, who stopped Grady Brewer yesterday, followed in his brother's foorsteps by knocking out Cuban veteran Julio Acosta (5-2, 3 KOs) at 1:39 of the third round.

Local lightweight Roman Andreev (14-0, 11 KOs) punished his Nicaraguan opponent Miguel Aguilar (11-7, 5 KOs) brutally for punching below the beltline by dropping him twice up until the stoppage was issued at 2:24 of the third by Alexander Kalinkin.

Finally, in a thriller bantamweight Nikolay Potapov improved his record to 10-0, 6 KOs) by winning a spirited decision over ten against the Dominican import Abigail Maedina (9-2-2, 5 KOs). Median clearly dropped the first seven rounds but rallied vehemently in the closing stages of the fight. It wasn't enough though.
